President Trump Previews Surveillance Scandal: It's Going to Be One of the Big Stories of Our Time

President Donald Trump shed light on this week's breaking news on Wednesday, saying that former Obama administration national security advisor Susan Rice's role in "unmasking" his campaign members will be "one of the big stories of our time."

“I think it’s going to be the biggest story,” PresidentTrump said to the New York Times. “It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time.” Trump’s remarks are his first public statement on the subject since reports claimed Rice was responsible.

He refused to go any further according to the report, saying would explain himself “at the right time.”

Rice, reportedly requested to unmask the names of President Trump's transition officials, releasing those names to all those at the National Security Council, some at the Defense Department, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and then-CIA Director John Brennan, according to Fox News
